When it comes to Snapchat, it's a chance for celebrities to get creative and show an unfiltered side of themselves. That's exactly how Khloe Kardashian uses the app, along with her famous sisters. And her all-star boyfriend is no stranger to Snapchat either. In fact, Tristan Thompson's Snapchat name is incredibly straightforward. As pointed out in his Instagram bio, it's simply TristanThompson.
If you're not already following the basketball player, now might be a good time to start. Especially since word spread on Tuesday that Khloe is reportedly pregnant with Thompson's child, according to Us Weekly and TMZ. (Bustle reached out to reps for Khloe and Thompson, but did not receive an immediate response.) The pair has been together for almost a year now, if you haven't been paying attention.
Coincidentally, if the baby news is true, the announcement would come at a celebratory time for the famous family, as reports have been circulating since Friday that Kylie Jenner is pregnant with Travis Scott's baby, though she hasn't confirmed it herself. (At the time, Bustle reached out to Scott's rep for comment, but did not receive an immediate response; Jenner's rep could not be reached.) Regardless, there's a lot to keep up with with the Kardashians on any given day, let alone the past week.
And when it comes to Thompson and Khloe's relationship, the couple has been going strong for a while. Even if the baby rumors turn out to be just gossip, that doesn't mean they're not committed to one another. After all, the day the rumor was unleashed, she'd just tweeted that she was in Cleveland, where Thompson works for — ICYMI — the Cleveland Cavaliers, and she seemed quite settled in the routine. She tweeted about being back in the city and getting into a workout routine, which is just the kind of boring thing people do when they're committing to their relationship, right?
Kardashian has spoken about settling down with the pro athlete before, in fact, she was rather open about it during the finale of Keeping Up With The Kardashians Season 13. "He wants to have, like, five or six kids with me, and that's lovely. We could start at one and then grow from there. But now, knowing I'm not on birth control, it's really scary. It's like a really big step," she said.
And just look at the sweet birthday message Thompson posted to his girlfriend in June. He wrote on Instagram,
"Happy bday my love, this picture right here sums up how wild, crazy and how much we love each other. Let's continue to build more memories and cherish them with each other. God bless you, I love you."
While he may not be as glued to his phone as his girlfriend is (at least based on the frequency in which they post on various apps), that doesn't mean he's not worth following — and as mentioned before, Snapchat is no different. Plus, the social media app can give you more insight into what his life is like off the basketball court.
Just like his girlfriend, Thompson seems to know how to raise eyebrows. Around the time the Khloe pregnancy rumors began to spread, he tweeted out a few eyeball emojis that sure seem like a side-eye.
Then again, it could be just coincidental timing — given the fact that his team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, was also trending on Twitter for a totally separate reason: The Cavs reportedly signed Dwayne Wade. But that's a whole different (basket)ball game. The point is, his social media presence is worth keeping an eye on, because who knows what he'll post next.
